Yemen’s revolutionary movement, Ansarullah stressed that the presidency of fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi is over, as it affirmed that the army and the popular committees are untouchable issue.
In an interview with Sada al-Massirah, Ansarullah Spokesman, Mohammad Abdussalam, said that the UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed was late in responding to the movement’s letter in which Ansarullah urged an agenda for the talks.
The revolutionary movement is sticking to its demands mentioned in the letter, Abdussalam said, accusing the other side of evading the peace talks.
“The one who is evading the political solution is the other side, because it wants to stay in power, without any legal cover,” Abdussalam said, referring to Saudi-backed Hadi and his party.
This side is using the international legitimate as a pretext, the spokesman added.
The Yemeni people don’t trust the ousted government, Abdussalam said, adding that this government is incapable of taking its real role as a national government.
“The presidency (that’s of Hadi) is over. It was over when the period set by the Gulf initiative had ended. However, it was extended and then Hadi himself resigned.”
Meanwhile, Abdussalam stressed that the Yemeni army, as well as the popular committees loyal to Ansarullah revolutionaries are untouchable because they are defending the country against the Takfiri threat represented by al-Qaeda and ISIL, and defending the country against the foreign invasion.
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
Ansarullah and Saudi-backed Hadi along with the allies of every side are expected to take part in peace talks aimed at ending the current crisis in mid November.
